NEW DELHI: Nestlé India celebrated their three-year long partnership with Magic Bus India Foundation, one of the largest behaviour change organisation at Kochi today.

The celebration marks the completion of 3 years of the Nestlé Healthy Kids Programme which has reached out to over 150,000 adolescents across 18 states since the inception of the partnership.

This partnership is based on sustained engagement on good nutritional practices and physical fitness among adolescents through sports-based sessions to make learning easy for the adolescents.

K. V. Thomas, Member of Parliament said, “I wish both the partners all the best and would encourage this program to steer adolescents in marginalised communities towards a healthy lifestyle with better nutritional awareness”.

Nestlé India believes that proper nutrition during the growing up years contribute to overall well-being. The Nestlé Healthy Kids Programme has been developed with a focus to provide nutrition education to adolescents. Along with students, this programme also includes interaction with parents through workshops to encourage them to implement healthy habits at home.

Sanjay Khajuria, Senior Vice President – Corporate Affairs, Nestlé India said, “The programme has benefitted as many as over 150,000 adolescents across 18 states of India. Designed specifically for adolescents in government schools and marginalized communities, the programme aims to create awareness regarding nutrition, health and active living in India.”

Matthew Spacie, Founder, Magic Bus India Foundation further added, “We equip around 400000 beneficiaries with the skills and knowledge they need to grow up and move out of poverty through our network of more than 9,000 youth mentors across 22 States and 58 districts in the country.
